OMG! Where are my patterns?

I haven’t been out here for a bit and was very surprised to discover that all my carefully loaded embroidery patterns in the 3 Box.net widgets had “disappeared”!  I’ve searched, tried changing Themes, but nothing has worked.  Will have to find my way to the Support Forums and contact The Powers that Be here on WordPress to try & find a solution.  I have all my original patterns, but the thought of loading them all over again is daunting, to say the least!

I have some patterns to post when I get things straightened out.  Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer  for me!

Easter 2014 Sampler

I wish you all a joyful Easter! 

This sampler contains beading, 5 special stitches in its modest 49 x 99 total stitches, and a quote from one of my favorite authors. 

Happy, peaceful stitching!

This pattern was inspired by a line in a book I’m reading, Hidden Mountain, Secret Garden: A  Theological Contemplation on Prayer.  I’ve always found it somewhat difficult to pray consistently.  I often read about it, thinking to discover a path to a deeper prayer life.  But most of the time needlework serves as the path to my hidden mountain, quieting and separating me from the world.  Setting my stitches is somewhat like fingering the beads of a Rosary, a physical meditation leading to peaceful contemplation and a sense of spiritual connection.

UPDAKE

I love colors against a black background (must have an Amish gene in the mix!) and inadvertantly left the black background in the pattern directions when I first posted.  Here’s what Prayer Seeks … looks like on  very dark fields … one black and one navy blue, and also on a pastel ground.

Adaptations: A reader lives … & All my scattering moments …

All my scallering moments IMy Mom loved needlework and had a collection of work done by her Mom and other family members.  Many of these beautiful things were lost during a flood in the 1950’s, but I’ve inherited the pieces that she was able to salvage.  Of these, one is a combination of applique and cutwork which I’ve always loved.  Last year I  adapted it for cross stitch, and am releasing it for your personal, non-commercial use.  The verses are ones from my collection.  So try the “Pick Your Colors” variation, or one with its colors provided, but enjoy!  The patterns for all reside in the Shared Files III widget at the bottom right of my blog page.

Happy Stitching
